Brighton resumed their Premier League campaign in fine fashion with a last minute 2-1 victory against Arsenal at the Amex Stadium last Saturday.

Third placed Leicester were also in action and they battled to a narrow 1-1 draw against Watford thanks to a superb goal from their left back Ben Chillwell.

Leicester beat Brighton 2-0 earlier this season at the Amex and Lawro, writing his weekly prediction piece for BBC Sport, backed the Foxes to do the same again.

"Leicester's draw with Watford on Saturday was such a strange game, with both goals coming in stoppage time," he wrote. "Ben Chilwell's strike to put the Foxes ahead was such a cracking goal and they must have thought they had nicked the points.

"That is exactly what Brighton did against Arsenal later in the day, and that really was a vital win for them.

"It takes the pressure off the Seagulls a bit at the bottom of the table now they have a five-point cushion above the bottom three, but I cannot see them upsetting Leicester.

Lawro's prediction: 2-0

Lawro's competitor for the week, rapper Aitch, opted for an even heavier, 3-0 defeat for Potter's men

If it's any consolation however, Lawro did predict a 2-0 win for the Gunners ahead of last weekend!
